Anybody know who makes that dual hydraulic lifting header trailer that can haul 2 headers at once? Its the one that lifts the headers up vertically. Can't seem to find any info on them. Thanks
We would eventually like to have two MacDon 45ft FD75s some day just for that reason, I think when you compare them on Case IH's website to a 45ft Case IH 3162 draper they're 1700lbs lighter.The problem with them are heads are getting so big and heavy the double header trailers are getting obsolete.
Tell me about it! I hauled in 30 heads last year from 6-12 hours away and it gave my 08 Ram 6.7 Cummins 3500 a heck of a workout. Most hauls were a JD 635F, often with a Crary CWS and those air tubes drag hard. With any kind of cross or head wind it took everything the truck had to hold 70 mph and you could hear the fan lock up. You would never pull 2 heads at that speed.Trailtech and Befort are certainly the most common manufacturers and are the 2 most professional custom harvesters use. However they are becoming less useful as heads get so big. Two 40 foot drapers now are pushing 25,000 lbs, and even a crew cab dually pickup truck has it's hands full moving them. I know at highway speeds in the hills a diesel dually usually won't even average 5 mpg pulling them. It's starting to be more common for single axel semis to pull those trailers.....they are horribly un-areodynamic!
